When plumbers fail the inspection.
In many cases of "The plumbers were here and the new plumbing has been installed". "The homes plumbing was upgraded last year".
That was a good thing since the old plumbing was the old galvanized piping and fittings.
The new plumbing is the PEX style plumbing which is a lot better over time than a lot of other products out there. In my opinion nothing beats copper and sweat joints.
There is one small pet peeve I have with plumbers. This is when they re plumb a home. And this home has a crawl space. They hardly ever install a shut off valve under the home at the access where the water supply line comes out of the ground.
Even though they were there attaching to the copper feed from the city water supply line.
Here is a picture of an example of not installing a shut off for the home.
As you can see this was the area the shut off needed to be installed when the new plumbing was installed. But there was nothing.
Plus this is an open crawl space with venting into the crawl space. This plumbing nees to be wrapped better than it is or is not in the condition it's in.
In a years time the insulation that used to be on the lines have degraded to the point it is now worthless. All of the lines under the home need to be wrapped. I would suggest the foam pipe wrap as an option. Less work and lasts a really long time.
This is why you always get a "Full Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
